Autumn Late Summer Open Day Sat 8th September 10am-2pm

Alitex Open Day

The date is set for our next Open Day, if you missed the last one don't worry we also have a host of horticultural friends and exhibitors planned for the 8th who will join us here at Torberry, our head quarters.

Marina Christopher will be joining us to talk about late summer flowers and her wealth of know-how and experience in these matters means that I shall definately be sat with my pen and notebook taking down as much of her advice as possible. Marina takes cover from the rain at our summer open day in our picture below.

We will also be showcasing our new orangery which allows us to more readily explain our fabulous conservatory, glass and aluminium product range. The orangery demonstrates how we take the research and development achieved from nearly sixty years of investment at Alitex and channel it into products that are now - that follow the zeitgeist of the way we live.

We will be joined by Petal Pod who make sculpture suitable for the garden or indoors. The artistic sculpture's have optional features which allow the Petal Pod to be modified to be:a cordless LED lighting system; a wireless speaker system; a water feature, an alluring fire display or a contained garden. Hand-made, bespoke and made to order, no two Petal Pods are ever the same - come along and have a look for yourselves!

Our other exhibitor Grants Blinds will be on hand to help you work out the best ways of monitoring and controlling heat in your conservatory or orangery. In due course, when all the decorating brushes have been lain aside we will have Grants Blinds fitted into our new orangery, as we have with our HQ conservatory.

For those in the process of building or planning glass and aluminium structures, this is your perfect opportunity to get expert advice. Grants Bespoke Blinds offers a complete service from the initial survey to installing your blinds. This way they can guarantee both the quality of the blinds and the service received.

Design demonstrations and a factory tour will be on offer should you wish to know more about the process of production. It means so much to be able to touch and feel our greenhouses and conservatories - it makes everything we talk about come alive and is very popular amongst our customers who have read all there is to read and just want some reality.
